That is quite a coup. It's rare in my experience that anyone comes over to the light side so eagerly, especially one with no real prior exposure.

Must have been the first set from that show, which is pretty accessible, and maybe that sweet UJB. Make it a point to ask, and good job!

Well, I did have an advantage in that he was already an avid music lover with very diverse tastes (like most of us here, as I extracted from the "Guilty Pleasure" post) and already possesed of an open mind. As for his favorite, he pointed immediately to the Scarlet/Fire (my fav as well). Oh, yeah, you mentioned the Uncle John's; want to make sure we are on the same page here, I'm referring to Dick's Picks Volume 6 Hartford C.C. 10/14/83.

I'm an idiot. I was thinking of the DP from '79 Oakland that has that sweet UJB.

But you're right, the Hartford 10-14-83 has a great Sc>Fire and (this time i'm pretty sure i'm right) a nice Est>Eyes as well....

No one here is an "idiot", merely "sporadically less intelligent" ;) (why isn't there a wingding for wink, wink, nudge, nudge?)

There's no such thing as a cat license.

What's that, then?

This is a dog license with the word "dog" crossed out and "cat" written in in crayon.

The man didn't have the right form.

What man?

The man from the cat detector van.

The Loony detector van, you mean.

Look, it's people like you what cause unrest.

What cat detector van?

The cat detector van from the Minister of hous-inge.

Hous-inge?

It was spelt like that on the van (i'm very observant). The man said his equipment could pin point a purr at 400 feet, and Eric being such a happy cat, was a piece of cake.

(I'll have to stop here, I could go on all night. Yes, Dead & Python go eerily well together)

Any shows that are forwarded his way that feature any unusual moments of cat torture will be accompanied by a warning.

OK, I know that Donna has taken her fair share of bashing on this board and I have been in the middle of a good amount, but I will reiterate before being mauled by the masses that I really do like her as a whole for what she brought to the band's sound during some of their best shows, but there are certain moments when she is able to make my spine rip itself out of my body and beat anyone in the vicinity senseless.

Yeah, especially in those 20+ minute intense jams with the wall of sound ( impeccible seperation of instruments )that weave in and out of other tunes. Yeah you're right they sure SUCKED in those years. Discounting what is undeniably their MUSICAL improvisational peak just because of a 20 sec yelp is completely throwing the baby out with the bath water. Would you rather listen to Jerry's 86 era gargled with barb wire and Camels voice than enduring just a flash of Donna's wailing after an incredibly mind blowing PITB?

never said they SUCKED in those years so get it right bucko and i'm not the one who gave the dude a 1983 show which ain't 1986 by the way ..you keep bringin' up 1986 --shit you might as well bring up 1995 . the year was 1983 and the dude got hooked and it makes you pissed ..why ?? why must it always be the 70's the 70's !!! hate to break it to ya but there were plenty of killer post 1970's shows . maybe you don't think so but i 'd say at least 100,000 or so others do .

remeber it's all a matter of taste and 1983 is very tasty

now lets get down to some 1970's dead ..

1973 is one of my fav years -especially the fall tour

good stuff ....

peace and jam on!!!!

First of all I'm not pissed about anything " bucko". I'm truly happy someone is diggin the music.

Second, I have listened to and enjoyed MANY Dead shows pre and post 70's so why don't you get off the notion I only listen to, how'd you put it?.... " why must it always be the 70's the 70's !!! "

That's not the only era I listen to by any stretch. Absolutely it is about taste and preference however I think you have to be blind not to see that the band was at it's most prolific and inspired 69-77. The sheer consistancy PROVES this whether you prefer a different era or not.

Last - my point was this notion that less than 10 seconds of Donna wailing negates the whole Song. Put up ANY 83 PITB against a 73-74 Playin and tell me the 83 version is better. Also, someone here went so far as to want to edit Donna out of every show she ever played with them in. Was that you? Whoever it was has some obvious mental issues imo.

delete donna from every song she attempted to howl i meen sing on ..now that would be a great idea ..but even i probably would'nt/could'nt mess with history and also i can't say i'm the one who came up with the idea would'nt want to steal someonelses credit ...so i guess i'm not as mental as some others ..
